Comic Relationships: Happily After Ever

You CAN, in fact, tell a good story that has…HAPPY RELATIONSHIPS.

Once upon a time, there were two fictional characters who were born under an unlucky star. For the fates known as The Executive Studio and their very own Creator had decreed that their lives would be intertwined in the most horrific of fates: To be locked into a romantic subplot.

After many a travail, first struggling to come to terms with it, then finally confessing it, then surviving the Extragalactic War and the resulting Time Disjunction, then crossing the boundaries of mind, body, and spirit, then splitting up over The Hoagie Incident, they found their way back to each other and lived happily ever after.

…WHAT?! HAPPILY EVER AFTER?!

NO! THIS CANNOT BE! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh-

Comic Relationships: They’re Off Again

“Sorry, I’m flattered, but I’m in a committed relationship. BEGONE, THOT.”

Love is in the air!

If you’re a writer, it means rich interpersonal drama for the heights or depths of emotion.

If you’re a fan, it means one thing: SHIPPING.

And if you’re a fictional character, well, love actually…sucks. If it’s not the love triangles, the deaths, or the fact that fictional characters are emotional wrecks, it’s the executive team deciding a breakup will boost viewership.

Final Week Fables: Magic Is Friendship

“Friends shouldn’t sell each other out,” it said with pity and reproach, “figuratively OR literally.”

And welcome, readers, to the end of the month and the Final Week Fable! The time when I force myself to keep my writer’s muscles in practice by banging out a short story based on an image in my collection.

What tale awaits us this time? What adventures lie in store? Well, for starters, our hint for this month is:

Chest Spirit
What’s small and magical and red all over?

Yes, another fantasy story. What a surprise. Deal with it! And be prepared to learn why Magic Is Friendship!

Green Lantern: The Galaxy’s Nightlight

Green Lantern simultaneously represents the character who is “one of the most powerful” as well as “a mere mortal”.

In brightest day, in blackest night, no evil shall escape my sight. Let those who worship evil’s might, beware my power, Green Lantern’s light!

If you don’t know that oath, then what are you doing reading DC comics?

Well, all the same, whether you don’t know and wanna learn more, or you DO know and just wanna read redundant info you already know, go ahead and read this article!

Buckle up, folks. It’s time for justice. SPACE justice.

Final Week Fables: Dapperwolf vs. Philosoraptor

Not for the first nor the last time, he had to fight the feeling that he was prancing on rooftops in the nude and climbing like a chimpanzee in the Borneo jungle.

Well, it’s that time of the month again, folks! Where I, a writer writing about writing stuff, attempt to do stuff that is actually writing! And what image shall be the inspiration for this month’s tale?

Remember: Art is meant to elevate mankind.

So clearly, this is going to be a very tasteful and refined short story. One which asks the most fundamental question at the very core of our psyche:

Who would win in a fight: A werewolf or a velociraptor?

Fabletop Classes: Ba Ba Ba Barbari-Ann

Incidentally, expect them to ignore shields in favour of two-handed, dual, or dual two-handed weapons.

It’s that time of the month, when I return to fables of the tabletop! And just who could be the cast member we’ll be focusing on this week? I’ll give you a hint:

A staple of Dungeons & Dragons.

That’s right, folks, you guessed it! It’s…! …NO, it’s not the BARD! Are you CRAZY?! What in that picture would make you think BARD?

Such a mistaken answer makes me ANGRY. One might say I am even filled with RAAAAAAAAAAAAAGE!

Ret’s Review: Bloodborne

On the whole, think of it as Monster Hunter’s bloodthirsty cousin and contrast the two.

The Blood Moon rises. The Hunt begins. The Nightmare never ends. And you, Hunter, are stuck in the middle of it all. With blade, with gun, with blood, slay the Beasts. Slay this Nightmare.

…Alright, now that I’ve gotten the obligatory “talk like a member of the fandom” intro out of the way, I’m here to talk about Bloodborne, which was free during PS Plus’s March rotation.

So here I am reviewing a game which has been out long enough for a fandom to pop up and mine every bit of lore out of it.

And which is no longer free as of the time of this post.

While being a complete and total newbie to From Software RPGs.

I’m sure this will go GREAT!
